As an aside.  I saw Sarracenia ggtrowing outdoors in Upper Michigan some 
years ago in a nature preserve. (It had a name, but it's not in my memory 
any more..

Dennis what mix did you use for the Sarracenia?
I grew some Sarracenia purpurea and hybrids from seed -3 months cold in 
baggie then warm on a heat pad in sphagnum over 1:1 peat / silica sand in a 
lettuce box - high humidity under lights in winter and after 13 months they 
are nice little plants up to 2 inches high with 10-12 leaves greens and red 

i like to know you plans for these plants outside beside making a bog

I was just at my local Lowe's (hardware superstore) and they have a
brand new collection of carnivorous plant terrarium kits. You can get
small or large kits in nifty square plastic terrariums.

I'm pretty sure the cobra lilies were Darlingtonia sp. This surprised
me as the things I've read about them say these are difficult to
cultivate indoors.

It was hard to resist impulse buying one. But maybe after a bit of
research I'll go back and get one.

Oh, and here's a picture of my new Sarracenia babies. Clockwise from
the left is S. flava var. rugelii, S. leucophylla var. "green", and S. x
'Red Rocket'.
